Purity of Diction in English Verse was written by Donald Davie and first published by Chatto & Windus in 1952. It was Davie's first book, and was followed three years later by a sequel: Articulate Energy. In 1992 Penguin published both books together in a single volume with a new foreword.

The book was written for the most part in Plymouth, and Davie put into it much of what he had learned at Cambridge.
